• The GATE identification process is done through the TVUSD district office. If your student has been identified in a previous district as Gifted it is important that you inform your councelor or the district office for your student to receive services accordingly. 

    If you would like your student to be tested for the GATE program contact the CHS Principal, via email and inform them that you would like your student assessed. Assessments are done 1x per year in the fall.

    The district's GATE web page is here.
